And for this I didn't even bother to include a couple of trade paperback versions of War and Peace. At one point, I looked at 14 editions all of which had wildly varying page counts. Even for a newer book such as Random in Death, the US and UK hardcover editions have different page counts.

For the most part, the pagelist refers to the hardcover edition which is identified by the ISBN in the ePub OPF document.
But for most people, they won't know what pBook version is used to get these page numbers as the info for the version is in the OPF and that's not something that can be seen unless you can get a look at the code. However, there could be multiple ISBN in the copyright page and the pBook ISBN would be the one the page numbers came from.

The reason I find page number important in Table of Content is I tend to calculate how much time I need to finish chapter.
Usually each 100 pages in a book takes me 3 hours to read.

Using the font size I tend to use, the Kobo number of pages I currently have , is close enough to most editions of the books I uploaded to my Kobo , so my 3 hours estimation should still be true.
You can set the header to show how many pages in the chapter. That would do without the need to add page numbers to the ToC.
